Property Description

Imagine parking in your own dedicated space and living in a townhouse, but with a doorman and amazing amenities.

This stunning duplex home is the perfect urban sanctuary with its own private garden overlooking a magnificent courtyard designed by Steven Yavanian Landscape Architecture. Designed by acclaimed architecture firm ODA, 51 Jay Street sets a new standard for living in DUMBO. Intensive study went into creating this duplex townhouse that is both elegantly proportioned and highly functional, a rare combination in warehouse conversions. This residence spans over 2400 square feet, with 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths and a wonderful home office/sleeping area/playroom. It currently is configured as a 2 bedroom.

Every detail throughout this duplex speaks of expert craftsmanship and fine materials that exude the industrial charm of the building. A wall of expansive and elegantly proportioned casement windows allows light to pour onto oak chevron floors in living areas. Oversized kitchen include dramatic custom cabinetry by Aster Cucine, La Rochelle Gris marble slab countertops, and a suite of Gaggenau appliances. The luxuriously appointed master bathroom features lacquered vanities, marble flooring, and a glass-enclosed walk-in shower and separate soaking tub.

The same level of design and attention to detail can be found throughout the impressive amenities at 51 Jay Street. A double-height, attended lobby features polished concrete flooring with steel tracks inspired by the original rails that carried goods through the building. The expansive rooftop terrace is outfitted with several areas for entertaining or relaxing, including an outdoor kitchen, a fireplace and outdoor showers. An additional floor of amenities includes a fitness center with yoga room, residents' lounge, children's playroom, bicycle storage, resident storage, pet washing and grooming station and a large capacity laundry room.

Dumbo | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

DUMBO, which is an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, used to be a lively industrial and manufacturing zone, full of large factories and warehouses. These buildings have now been converted into expansive lofts, theaters, galleries, and office spaces for start-up companies. These larger residential spaces are attractive to families and creative artists and writers who need space to dream and create. 

DUMBO was named in 1978 as a sort of reverse marketing ploy to try to keep people from swarming into the area, attracted by the quaint tree-lined streets, elegant historic brownstones, large lofts, and views of Lower Manhattan. It was felt that this influx of people would change the nature of the neighborhood. It was hoped that by giving the area a ridiculous name, nobody would want to live there.

Many of the neighborhood’s bars, hotels, and restaurants capitalize on the stunning waterfront views and the Manhattan skyline in the background. Interesting and fun cultural events are held under and around the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges that connect DUMBO to Manhattan. One of these is the annual Oktoberfest.

With beautiful vignettes of the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges being framed around every corner, DUMBO provides residents and tourists with charming, and often surprising, views. Because the neighborhood is eminently walkable and filled with unique shops, it feels like a small town on the edge of a major urban waterfront. Once people move to DUMBO, they tend to stay and become involved in the community.
